Ellington 3rd guard to join Mavs in free agency
DALLAS -- Wayne Ellington has become the third guard to join the Dallas Mavericks in free agency.
Ellington tweeted late Tuesday night that he had agreed to a contract with Dallas. The deal is reportedly for two years and $5 million.
The 6-foot-4 shooting guard split last season between Memphis and Cleveland. He was traded to the Grizzlies last summer and went to the Cavaliers midseason in a four-player deal.
The 25-year-old has never averaged double figures in four years, but did score 10.4 points per game in the second half of last season with Cleveland. His career scoring average is 6.9 points.
The Mavericks have also agreed to deals with Jose Calderon and Devin Harris. A fourth guard, Gal Mekel, is coming over from Israel.
